For the love of symmetry, continued.

Some of the designs I made yesterday were more botanical than others, and from simple geometries it was tempting to make it a bit more detailed and complex so I started designing wreaths. I always loved doodling wreaths, as a teen they were everywhere in my copybooks.

Drawing is about creating your own rules, and making them evolve, so I followed my own path here, from simple to complex. At some point instead of drawing from imagination and simple forms, I began designing more specific flowers and plants, first from memory and then checking my botanical books and documentation to make them more exact.

Now I’m thinking of making it a little bit more complex…I’m enjoying myself a lot here!
